Last month, Lakeyah teamed up with the legendary tastemaker DJ Drama for their collaboration project My Time (Gangsta Grillz: Special Edition). The 11-track effort includes additional appearances from names like Bankroll Freddie, OG Parker, Tyga, and Moneybagg Yo.
She returns this week with a new freestyle to remind people once again she can truly spit. From Meek Mill, Lil Tjay, Russ, Shenseea, and plenty more, everyone knows to bring their best bars when sitting in the HOT 97 seat next to Funk Flex. Over the City Girls’ widely recognized “Act Up” beat, Lakeyah flows with a smooth confidence:
Life been Gucci but I really got a bag now, I’m still getting paid from my first tape, that’s a cash cow/ I just got a big body Benz, cashed out, pull me to the club got me walking through the back now/
They overlookin’ but it’s 30 just to book me, I swear I came in killin’ the game, I’m the rookie/ Don’t compare me to these hoes that only rap about their pussy, everyday mood, I’m killing these hoes, as it should be
In terms of visuals from the project, she has dropped off clips for tracks like “Reason,” “Check” featuring Moneybagg Yo, and “313-414” featuring Tee Grizzley. Prior to this, Lakeyah unleashed her latest body of work In Due Time back in April and has been spoiling fans with consistency in terms of fly visuals. First leading with the lavish “Easy” video, then the Gucci Mane-assisted “Poppin’” cut, then “Too Much,” “Perfect” featuring Yung Bleu, she continued with “Young And Ratchet” and kept her momentum going to set up her stage perfectly for My Time to arrive. Judging by her work ethic, consistency, and execution, Lakeyah is shaping up to be one of Quality Control’s most promising acts.
